I've been enjoying shooting these mosaics with the AT65EDQ. For this target I plan on getting some H-alpha from my house to complete the data set, but for just the color, I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Similarly to the Double Cluster shot, I'm pleased as punch with the varying star sizes. I feel like it adds a lot more depth to the image.

Nicely done Neil and thanks for posting the image acquisition and processing info. That's what really helps us to get a feel for how we might go after it with our own gear and location. This type of info makes AstroGab so much more than a pretty picture place.
